I made a shinier version of this jacket here: https://sweetdevil-sims.tumblr.com/post/162156653168

Hello again, everyone, long time no see This time it's another project crossed off my list: an edit of the basegame leather jacket for teen-adult females. At first I only wanted to edit the specular to make it less shiny, but then someone commented (rightfully so) that the jacket doesn't really look like a leather jacket at all - the seams and buttons are something you'd expect from a cotton jacket. So, now I present a bigger edit than I originally set out to do!

The front of the jacket is basically completely repainted and I also used some real jackets for inspiration for the seams.

Details
  • Default replacement. Requires only the basegame.
  • For Teen - Elder females. The textures are shared by all age groups.
  • Two options provided: one with custom thumbnails and one with the default EA thumbnails (more on this here) - choose only one! The version with custom thumbnails also conflicts with anything that edits the CASP resources of the jacket (like recategorizing mods).
  • The presets, channels and outfit categories are unchanged. However, I did add zippers as an unrecolorable overlay

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Hey, cool. I'm just about done making a leather jacket too. This one's way more useful than the horrible, horrible default one. But isn't it a little too shineless?

The previews definitely show it from an angle that's a bit more matte than it is in-game (or at least it's how it looks for me). If you want I can make a version with a brighter specular, let me know which you want (custom or default thumbnails) Looking forward to seeing your leather jacket too, if you want to share it!

@TropicanaCat - thank you!

I think that would be a great idea, since there's obviously different kinds of leather that each look a little different. I always try to have multiple variations in specularity.
And I've sent you a link to my jacket - I've put it on my Tumblr already.

Hi, I just saw your message. If you point me in the direction of the maternity conversion, I will be more than happy to try and make it work It'll take a bit, though, since I don't have access to the game for some time.

Haven't logged in for ages so sorry for the late reply You can find the Jacket here : http://oneeuromutt.tumblr.com/post/...led-defaults-87
I am fairly sure it's afTopJacket34Sleeve . It does look bland and shiny as most basegame clothes, and OneEuroMutt has pregnat-converted most game clothes so i'm sure you could use the mesh if you credit her
I love your fixes, as the garments just needs a little cosmetic work and getting rid off the plastic shine, so thank you so much for doing the magic you do :D
